    As soon as they showed the replay I thought he was going to be suspended. But with the NHL, you never know how they will judge. Oh Well!

    Shoulder, arm....it was from behind and up against the boards.

    That said, Poni was very close to him when he he moved toward hitting him.

    It seems like the type of play that's made a 100 times a game. Unfortunately, the guy collapsed and the hit appeared to be much worse.

    Oh well - better now than in the playoffs.

    The NHL is really going after the hits in recent weeks... my only problem is that there's still too much gray area. This hit has nothing to do with the head shot rule that they just put up. This is really a subjective boarding call that it appears got an End ruling based on the balancing or lack of balancing skills from the other guy. Guarantee that if the player Poni boarded was stronger on their feet, Poni isn't getting suspended and that right there is a problem with these types of rules.

    That said, I doubt we miss him. Ponikarovsky has been useless. I'd rather have Caputi still in the system. Hopefully Ponikarovsky's game gets a ton better in the playoffs like Fedotenko's, because they are both the same type of player in the Regular season except that Poni is bigger and soffer

    The only player in the NHL more overpaid than MAF is Jordan Staal
